    Never let them know how much you know or can do.

    The more you do, the more they want you to do even more. I know that all too well.

    and if you don’t do it very well, do they get someone else to do yours?

    The less you do, the less people expect from you.

    At this point, people are amazed I can walk and chew gum at the same time ;)

    Job security. Do it for 15 or so years and they will lay you off.

    Sometimes you can give the laziest person the toughest job and they’ll find the easiest way to do it.

    No good deed goes unpunished. Also, incompetence seeks its own level. And inevitably finds it. On top of your skull.

    In prison, good behavior is rewarded with time off. At the office, it’s rewarded with more work.

    A few years ago, a friend on mine got to do 3 other people’s work after they were “Reduced in Force” and never replaced. In spite of her Manager’s Promises.

    Nothing like being on Salary, working 60 hours a week, and getting a bad evaluation for not being able to keep up with 4 people’s workload.

    They kept doing it because she had enough Seniority that they would owe her a Boatload of Money unless they could force her to Quit of her own free will.

    For some reason, my replies to comments aren’t going where they should.
